I have a rash around my waistline. Small raised red bumps

Customer Question

I have a rash around my waistline. Small raised red bumps have appeared around my waist and under my pubic hair. They are not on my genitals so I'm hoping it is a dermatology issue and not a sexual health issue. They typically don't itch unless irritated by my pants line. They are not painful. Any thoughts on what these may be?

Hi

Can I ask if you shave the area involved?

I do not shave the area involved. Never have. I did notice them once I started working a job in which I am running around sweating a lot. I was hoping that had something to do with it. I did come across a viral "STD" the name of which escapes me that unfortunately looks similar to what I see. Hope that's not it.

Thanks

Can you post an image of the rash?

You need to use the tree icon on the toolbar.

I'm not sure what you mean by the tree icon on the toolbar. Where exactly am I looking?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 7 years ago.
Hi

There should be a row of icons at the top of your dialog box - the tree icon is between the link and you tube icons.

You may need to click "show toolbar" first.

I am using google chrome as my browser. Not sure where the tree or the show toolbar options are. Should I use a different browser or is this a feature of the site?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 7 years ago.
Hi

I'm not an expert on that!

Worth trying an alternate browser.

I'll ask admin to contact you to help.

I thought I could send it via my phone. I can't get a good image, and don't have my regular camera available. Is there anyway we could pick this up at a later time?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 7 years ago.
Hi

Sure.

You can post a picture when you can.

I check out my questions every day so I will always get back to you.

I appreciate it. I'm currently uninsured and unable to afford a trip to the dermatologist. This thing has me a little paranoid. As soon as I get back to my permanent residence, I'll try and get a picture up there. Do you have any contact information for the admins so I can make sure I know how to do that?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 7 years ago.
Hi

I have already contacted them on your behalf.
